David Byrne, The Roots, And Kimbra Pay Tribute To David Bowie At 2016 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame
By Sheldon Pearce
The 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony opened with a tribute to David Bowie. David Byrne, The Roots, and Kimbra took to the stage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn to perform "Fame." Watch clips of the performance below. Last month, The Roots, Kimbra, and Bilal dropped out of both David Bowie tribute concerts at Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall in New York. "We have patience. But we do NOT have patience for the #Bitchassness," Questlove wrote on Instagram, alluding to the incident. "Enjoy your precious equipment."
